Great work Pingu.

Pics are very important, so I'm glad you have them; both for realisation of what you look like and also to see improvements. I do this with all my clients.

Interesting to see what training you do as I am currently training the Ulster U16 100m & 200m Butterfly champion. Since starting with me she has made some great progress both in strength & also in the pool. Strength training definitely helps.

If you want to point any of your clients in the direction of this thread as well then go ahead. If any of them have an ED especially do it... it never goes away but you can learn to control it rather than it controlling you!!

Woah. That's some serious swimming there!!! Especially Butterfly. That's an insane stroke. I used to cry after every race because it hurt that much, then got in and did it again!! Lalalalallalalala!!!

I trained/competed 6 days a week, mostly twice a day for years when I was a hell of a lot younger. That's the sort of training your superstar will be doing. Unfortunately in those dinosaur days there wasn't the recognition of strength training there is now. I wish there had been, it may have helped my wonky arm more!! I stopped competing when I was 16.

Now I train occasionally in the pool, mainly because we don't have a decent club (well, the people are decent but we don't have a coach) and none of the squads for youngsters will take us old farts. I find it incredibly dull just swimming up and down and that isn't proper training but the "coach" wont hear it. So, off season, it's cross training for me....and especially this year as I need to heal a shoulder injury.

The real training kicks in around May...when you can just about get in the open water....our sport you aren't allowed wetsuits!!!!!!!!

Hi there, you are officially my hero!
Your pics are absolutely amazing, I am really impressed!!!
I have just begun pulling myself together, but seeing results like yours will surely help remain motivated when I'll start thinking that maybe it's not worth the effort!

Hey Cat

Thank you!

It's definitely worth it!!! It's even worth missing mince pies for. The only thing I can't quite get rid of is the odd single malt whisky but a girl's gotta have some pleasures!

Pictures really do help with motivation. And taking one step at a time...

Keep your sights on the long term goal but don't get so lost in it that you don't think you are getting anywhere. Take pleasure in the achievements along the way and that way you will retain your motivation.

You can do it ;)
